    I have been working at Visionworks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You make your own schedule, hire your own people. The commission here is the best out there. You cant find an hourly position that pays what we do. You can take care of customers and sell you make $$. Ive made several raises and bonuses. Work is fair

    Cons

    Managers complain about being understaffed, then hire your own people! Its the managers job to hire! -- Not getting trained? Take a step up and ask for more training. Quit complaining. If youre miserable then leave, please. You work hard, you get the rewards. You dont, you wont.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the managers that like to complain and bring the regions down.
